It started out like I had an eyelash in my eye that I couldn't get out. The next morning my eye was really red, itchy, watery and swollen. So I made an appt with my Gen. Pract she thought it may be Pink Eye. She prescribed me Tobrex eye drops. Two days later it was so much worse. The white of my eye was solid red, swollen and so sore. My eye wouldn't stop watering and matting up. So I went to an opthalmologist. She said she wasn't sure what it was, it didn't have all the characteristic of one certain infection. So she treated me for Herpes ocular infection. After two days on Viroptic eye drops my eye continued to get worse. By this time I was in agonizing pain. It felt as if someone was grinding my eye with a steel brush. There was so much pressure and throbbing also. I went back and my cornea had small abrasions on it. The endside of my eyelid was solid blisters. She said that what's causing my pain. They starting me on vigamox and durezol eye drops. They helped for a couple of days but I'm at a stand still its been 3 more days with no more changes. I'm going on week three. They won't release me to go back to work. I'm starting to get really agitated. They still don't know exactly what it is. It seems like you should be able to do some kind of swab to see if its fungus, bacteria etc. I know its contagious because my daughter is in the early stage. Please someone help me. I don't know how much more I can handle!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
